    Govt moves to tap share of Indus to strike back at Pakistan

    0 Not allowed!
    In keeping with its decision to review utilisation of Indus waters
    as part of its signalling that Pakistan cannot expect past voluntary concessions to continue as long as it exports terror to India, the government has moved further on a project to store water in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district.

    Looking to fast-track utilisation of India's rights under the
    Indus Waters Treaty (IWT), the Central Water Commission (CWC) has finalised a detailed report on Ujh multi-purpose project and the government made it clear the proposal aims to harness water that was flowing untapped across the border. The project report has been submitted to the J&K government for evaluation so that construction may begin at an early date.

    The project, which is to come up in Kathua district, will store around 0.65 million acre feet (MAF) of water from Ujh (a tributary of
    Ravi) to irrigate 30,000 hectares and produce over 200 MW of power.
